Parking & Transportation Information Update Spring 2017


As the beginning of the spring semester rapidly approaches, Mason students, faculty and staff are reminded that traffic on and around the Fairfax campus greatly increases, especially during the first few weeks of the semester. The following information is intended to serve as a campus parking and transportation guide and help minimize potential parking and traffic delays. A valid parking permit is required to park outside of visitor areas.

During the first few weeks of the semester, we suggest allowing an extra 30-45 minutes to arrive on campus. Though some parking spaces are more convenient to your destination than others, the Fairfax campus has more than enough total parking spaces to accommodate all vehicles. However, many General parking permit areas are still expected to fill at peak class times. Below is guidance regarding road construction, parking, shuttles, alternative transportation options, and finding parking & transportation information.

At times during the morning, late afternoon and early evenings, campus police cadets will be directing traffic around campus. Please be alert and follow the cadet's direction.
